Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

That may be the dumbest post ever!!! Even waxturd only gave you two judge-its.
Worldwide, the team with the tanks more often turns them against the government than it does against the people. This has never been tested in the US. Time will tell.

4.26%.
and that's how many of us will buy into right wing scare tactics.
while the rest of us have a good laugh. and yes, the rest of us. have you seen all this conservative bashing from conservatives?
talk about highly amusing.
I understand you and Obama have never read the Constitution, so I'll give you just a little bit about the kind of government it defines:
The Constitution prohibits the president from issuing edicts to the general population. According to the Constitution, the only instructions from the government the population is bound by are in the form of laws that have been passed in accordance with the procedures defined in the Constitution.
In short, nothing Obama orders the population to do is valid. He does not have that authority. He is restricted to issuing orders solely to the Executive Branch of government.
He would have to be in rebellion against the government of the United States to do otherwise.

Obama would know this if he ever even read the Constitution.

Your thoughts;
- Planned Parenthood performed 335,000 abortions/murders last year, roughly 1/2 of all abortions/murders in the US
- Planned Parenthood referred 2300 individuals for adoption
- Planned Parenthood received 542 million dollars from the Federal Government last year
- Why is our government funding abortions/murder?
- Why did the government not spend the 542 million dollars on supporting and nurturing life?

Well, I can't speak for them, but since you clowns were bombing the shit out of 600,000 iraqis for no good reason maybe they thought they should fall in line?

Again, DB, if you really want someone to answer the "questions" you'll need to pose them in the form of a question, instead of providing the desired answers yourself. Go and think about it and then come back to me - and everyone else in the world, apparently - in the form of a question, which, by its very nature, actually courts an answer. Otherwise you're just engaging in a rhetorical game and, as you may have noticed, other people can play that game too.
In case you had a problem reading the written English language, here are the questions again. Notice there is a question mark at the end of the sentence, as has always been the case:

Where exactly was Obama when the White House was watching the real-time video of the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Got an answer? To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer these two questions.

That could be close, it proves my statement correct, actually two if you were measuring those referenced as others.

Assuming that they are measuring race of mother__once again tricky for there are Hispanics and Native Americans in those figures.

Evolution Less Accepted in U.S. Than Other Western Countries, Study Finds

This chart depicts the public acceptance of evolution theory in 34 countries in 2005. Adults were asked to respond to the statement: "Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals." The percentage of respondents who believed this to be true is marked in blue; those who believed it to be false, in red; and those who were not sure, in yellow.

A study of several such surveys taken since 1985 has found that the United States ranks next to last in acceptance of evolution theory among nations polled. Researchers point out that the number of Americans who are uncertain about the theory's validity has increased over the past 20 years.

World's greatest country.

too bad the rest of the world doesn't agree.

Ensuring that taxpayer money isn't funding abortions under the law shouldn't upset you if this isn't the case.
The more you protest, the more I want an audit.
You might not mind paying for abortions, but I do, and the law is on my side.
PP performed more than 330,000 abortions last year and received over 500 million in federal funding.
If PP is not breaking the law, then you have no need to worry.
"carol"
Planned Parenthood has dozens of CPA's who work to cook the books to show that no Federal monies are used for abortion/murder. They simply transfer funds. They use Federal funds for services not including abortion. Without Federal funding, Planned Parenthood, would perform just as many abortions/murder. They would simply cut back on legitimate services. Abortion/murder is Planned Parenthood's reason for being.

"We" is "our government." As opposed to "your government," which, I guess, by definition doesn't exist yet? As far as who's going to gas you, I think it's safe to say you've pissed off enough smart people sufficiently that I assure you there will be a long line. So, here's the fundamental question: in a fight who do you want on your team, the smart kids or carol? As for the military, who cares? I mean who really cares? These are people that'd be working at McDonalds otherwise, did they suddenly become enlightened? Besides, even if they did decide to support your team that'd just mean you'd have to pay them and which of you is going to do that?

(excuse, excuse, excuse,(hurry up will ya!))
If you care to make some sort of justification as to why Obama should be allowed to be a dictator, then, by all means, make a reference to precedent. Tell us about who set that precedent, how it was set, and how Obama is merely doing it because... how do you idiots like to say it... "Bush did it, too."

Tell us about the precedent Obama is following.
What president issued edicts directly to the population?

... this should be good.
